Where to stay in Rome
When choosing accommodation, you can't beat a holiday apartment in Rome. HouseTrip has many Rome apartments offering great value and the chance to experience the city like a local. Try a villa in Rome in the Borgo area for Vatican views and Renaissance splendour. Alternatively, riverside Regola is an artsy district with a laid-back vibe, shopping, markets and quaint plazas. To find a holiday apartment in Rome in the perfect neighbourhood, be sure to consult our detailed Where to Stay in Rome guide. Whether you're looking for a romantic weekend away or taking the family on an unforgettable city break, Rome apartments provide you a home away from home.
When to go to Rome
The best time to stay in a holiday apartment in Rome is March to June (spring) or September and October (autumn), when the skies are blue and the weather mild. Insider tip: the Giornate FAI takes place one weekend each spring, where owners of private historic properties open up to the public what is normally off-limits. Born in 753 BC, you can book a holiday apartment in Rome and join in the city's birthday festivities on April 21. During the Estate Romana festival, which runs from June - September, Rome's squares come alive with live music, outdoor films, food events and more. Winters aren't particularly cold, averaging around 10-15°C, but November and December can be wet. In short, a Rome apartment stay has appeal year round.
Getting to and around Rome
Flights to Rome arrive at two airports, Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) and Ciampino. Those who book a holiday apartment in Rome can also arrive via the main train station, Stazione Termini, where there are regular trains with local and international service. Once in Rome, getting around from your holiday apartment in Rome is made easy by a good public transport system, particularly buses and trams. If catching taxis, be sure to choose a white or yellow cab with the letters SPQR on the front door, which indicates that it is licensed. Many of the major sights are within 2-3 km of central holiday apartments in Rome.
Visiting Rome is like exploring a living postcard with Italian icons at every turn. From nuns licking gelato to pretty girls on Vespas, Rome's residents are as recognisable as its monuments. When in Rome, do as the Romans do and stay in apartments in Rome for an authentic experience in the Eternal City.
There is a bucket list of must-sees for every visitor, and choosing a holiday apartment in Rome near the centre will put you a stone's throw away. When on holiday in Rome, you cannot miss the Colosseum, home of gladiators. Piazza Navona, surrounded by majestic Baroque villas in Rome, was built on the site of an ancient arena. The dome of the Pantheon is a wonder of the ancient world and mausoleum for Italian royalty. Make a wish and throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain before heading to the Spanish Steps to take in a beautiful sunset over the skyline. If your stay in a holiday apartment in Rome includes a Wednesday, you can have an audience with the Pope in the Vatican's St Peter's Square. Afterwards, head inside to admire Michelangelo's genius in the Sistine Chapel and climb to the top of the dome of St Peter's Basilica.
Somewhat off the beaten track from your holiday apartment in Rome you'll find an extraordinarily unique, if somewhat macabre, spectacle. In the Capuchin crypt under the Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini church near Piazza Barberini, the bones of around 3,700 friars exhumed from a former cemetery were brought here. They were put to use as architectural elements - including bone chandeliers and frescoes - reminding us of our mortality. Afterwards, return to the land of the living and rest your weary bones in your comfy cottage in Rome.
Of course, some of Rome's best attractions aren't buildings at all. Italian food is famed for its brilliant use of simple, fresh ingredients. Try the authentic, wood-fired pizza at Da Remo in Testaccio, before indulging in the city's best gelato at Gelato di San Crispino. Breakfast isn't a big deal in Italy, so choosing self-catering holiday apartments in Rome is a good option to save money (and room) for the main event of the day - lunch. Be sure to check out our Rome food guide, which details local favourites for the best eats in town.
Whether you're walking in the footsteps of toga-sporting ancient Romans in the old forum, shopping for young designer finds in Parione or revelling in the nightlife of Trastevere, you can look forward to your own holiday apartment in Rome upon your return.
